Reviewer: Dave B 1986 - - April 10, 2015
Subject: fantastic sound
boy this is fun. the sound is terrific - can really pick up different tones on Jerry's guitar. You know it's a good night when "All Over Now" gets you. simply three chord white boy blues, but its toe-tapping good, jerry's licks are rollin and tumblin, and brent's organ is ripping. Also, I think was unaware of jack-a-roe played in 1979. Its a bit closer to the 1977 version I know (that got put on the fall-out from the Phil zone). Sometimes i find the post radio city versions of this less than compelling. This one is nice.

Subject: monster 2nd set
this whole show rocks and 2nd set is some of the very best, nuanced, beautiful '79 sbds thx to the obvious source for final product.

playin>drums is smokin; almost getting into a JGB vibe and way out howard wales-type jamming.

sailor>st rocks; wharf rat heartfelt; trucking to end the show? unusual and different... jgb? icing on the cake.

loved it -- thank you grateful dead

Left Chicago 2 months before this event, oh #$*^. Can't stop listening to it, especially Scarlet. OMG. Pure magic.

I wonder how many times Truckin' is the walk-off - not too many I'd wager. It seems like it is always a song that is headed somewhere else in the end...apropos I suppose.

Subject: Truckin
Very cool ending to truckin. As if they were not sure what to do they just end. sound on this one is above OUTSTANDING

Subject: Hot show on a cold night
Ahhhh hahhh ..... Charlie this is a reference copy not a "vault tape"
Thanks, Chuckles for making my favorite Dead show as easy to listen to as a "bookmark" on my browser.
Opinion: use wavelab not samplitude. This recoding sounds"digital" and it is not. I was there.

Stellar audio on this here recording. Solid playing and musicianship, too. Very typical (read: awesome!) fall '79 show.
Reviewer: dead-freak - - February 29, 2008
Subject: Amazingly Crispy Sound
Again the year of 79 astounds me with the particular care that hd been taken to record such amazing material. Awesome stuff and I love it all!! Every note, so there critics.
Reviewer: pnc - - January 16, 2008
Subject: Very Nice!
Once again, kudos to CM. This is a stellar performance and an excellent recording. The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because I have not yet had a chance to listen through anythin btter than my computer. From Lazy Lighting on is superb...
Reviewer: JamminJerome - - October 4, 2007
Subject: Can't believe this one's got no reviews yet!
It baffles me that out of two sources, there is only one review for this show! This is another solid show from the fall/winter of 1979. The sound on this one is good, and there's so much to like about it. Nice Scarlet>Fire and post-space is EXCELLENT - grate Wharf Rat, Truckin' in particular. Solid 4 stars.
